Re: Thursday 28th September - Port at the Boot & Flogger

Oops. I should have explicitly asked that somebody check. Please consider it a standing request.

I might be late, so have left my bottle at the B&F. Please decant and quality-assure.

Re: Thursday 28th September - Port at the Boot & Flogger

Backup plan: I print Tuesday evening (rather too early methinks), and deposit placemats and bottle on Wednesday.

Who, other than Ben, want to take possession of the new cufflinks?

Re: Thursday 28th September - Port at the Boot & Flogger

I have to go to a conference, so will be late. With space tight, and eight people, it would be most efficient to print the placemats on /USLegal  = 14″×8½″. Is there anybody able to print on US Legal who will be punctual? • Parma ham with melon, burrata mozzarella and fig dressing. • Chargrilled sir...

The possibility of a slow degrading reaction between TCA and another chemical within the wine seems entirely credible
This might be helped by TCA being present in very small quantities. A reaction between something scarce and something not-scarce might not remove much of the not-scarce.

Re: HABEMUS VINTAGE PORT

No this is "only" 5 Litres. So disappointing. Thirsty. Open proper bottle. Make progress: drink an amount that feels like ⅚ of the whole. Return for a top-up and — and catastrophe. Disaster and devastation, calamity and debacle, an unheralded emergency: it’s all gone. Too small. Six litres is the w...

I’m saying “There might have been a 2½% discount.”
or a 2½% premium (perhaps for non-cash/credit).
Discount for cash were quite normal; premium for non-cash not seen otherwise. So, protected by the “might”, as I have it.

No luck searching here, though one possible source might be the Gaumont Pathe archive of Gaumont documentaries. Online video search/access is only available to registered news personnel, but direct contact to the organisation might be worth a try.
